Elegant Christmas Ornament
I hope your week is going wonderfully! Time seems to be just flying by for us these days. The silence on the job hunt is deafening, yet everything else seems to be just flying by us. To keep sane.... I made another Christmas card. This card uses the newly released set from Our Daily Bread designs called Ornaments 2, and is cut with the coordinating Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornament Die. I love love love this set! I used Coredinations for my base, and Anna Griffin Calisto Christmas and Recollections brushed gold for my designer paper. The ivory strips are Gina K embossed with a CB folder, then inked with Brilliance Galaxy Gold. The ornament itself was heat embossed on white card, then sponged with T Holtz Fired Brick. I heat embossed the sentiment and cut with a SU! punch, then mounted on a Spellbinders Holly Accents cut out from the Holly Accent Dies. I punched a hole in the ornament and ran some gold cording through it, and mounted that to the main panel, then added a pine bough edge punched piece (MS). I sewed each panel and added some bling and a sheer ribbon.
